    Mr Gray ‐ 1 Sep 2019
    " A nice quiet rural location in beautiful countryside, but only 3 miles from the Market town of Leek. The only slight downside was the internet was a bit intermittent, as was the TV reception. Otherwise a highly recommended cottage. "
    Mr Mckinnon ‐ 1 Jul 2019
    " It was very peaceful and just what we wanted.The owner was helpful and friendly. It was a very nice touch to leave us some homemade cakes and tell us we could get more cakes and fresh milk any time we wanted from the farmhouse kitchen. A cosy pretty little place, in a lovely part of the Derbyshire countryside, ideal for the short break that we had. "
    Mr Bradford ‐ 1 Mar 2019
    " Lorna went out of her way to make us feel welcome and the cottage was perfect! Beautiful surroundings and had some lovely walks followed by a soak in the hot tub! "
    Miss Roberts ‐ 1 Mar 2019
    " Beautiful annex, very clean and spacious and 15 minute walk to a lovely tea room. Would definitely recommend x "
    Miss Bimpson ‐ 1 Nov 2018
    " Lorna was very friendly and everything was as expected. I will be coming back here! "

    "While the overall break was lovely and what I'd expected, there are a few concerns: ..."
    Mrs Harris ‐ 1 Aug 2018
    "She stated this was because other families had not been using hot tub safely. She said had changed website and children were not allowed to use hot tub. However, when we checked it still stated children from age of ten could use. Only two towels for shower provided and these were threadbare. Unable to read dial on oven as worn away."
    Mrs Harris ‐ 1 Aug 2018
    "Owner did not want my 10 year old son to use hot tub even though stated on website could be used by children 10 years and above. She stated this was because other families had not been using hot tub safely. She said had changed website and children were not allowed to use hot tub. However, when we checked it still stated children from age of ten could use. Only two towels for shower provided and these were threadbare. Unable to read dial on oven as worn away."

    "Cottage not good standard, dirty plates in cupboard, bathroom smelt of cigarette smoke, empty soap dispenser in bathroom, old thin small towels. Owner then disturbed us to ask why we had the heating on with window open (smoke detector went off while cooking, needed to air room). No privacy, not professional, constantly told how hot tub issue was inconvenient for her but no mention of inconvenience to us. Would never stay there again, shocking"

    "Hot tub not working and owner and offered no apology and just said no refunds, got an inflatable hot tub on 3rd night of 4 night stay, eventually offered partial refund after 2 days of ignoring my emails. Cottage not good standard, dirty plates in cupboard, bathroom smelt of cigarette smoke, empty soap dispenser in bathroom, old thin small towels. Owner then disturbed us to ask why we had the heating on with window open (smoke detector went off while cooking, needed to air room).

    "We took a short break of three nights in this delightful property. As we approached along the bumpy track we wondered what we would find at the end! A hidden treasure in the form of Hen Cloud annexe awaited us, just to the side of the owners' B & B and nestling close to the Roaches rocks and heather -covered hills. Lorna and Nick the owners welcomed us and had even left cake in the fridge for hungry travellers! The property was spotlessly clean and well laid out with everything we needed. Lots to do and see around here, whether it be walking, climbing or simply relaxing with visiting relatives as we did. Loved it and would definitely think about a return visit."
    - Chris K, November 2015
    "We visited the Hen Cottage Annexe this weekend (late Nov 15) and stayed for two nights. The setting is wonderful (the track leading up is bumpy but not a problem at all) and the cottage is set in the hills. It's ideally situated for exploring in the Peak District, it feels out in the middle of nowhere (which is exactly what we wanted) but equally Leek is only 4 miles away and Buxton only around 10. The cottage itself is clean, comfortable, spacious, with nice roof windows and it's a perfect romantic getaway whether you want a base from which to explore, or somewhere to just relax (we did a bit of both). The heating is also really effective (not an exciting point(!) but if you travel in the winter the cottage retains heat really well and warms up to be really toasty very quickly if you've been out for the day. Lorna, the owner, is really friendly and cakes and milk were available on arrival which was a really nice touch. I would recommend this to anyone, it's a really nice place."
    - Mr Watson, September 2016
    "Excellent cottage, location was good and owner was very friendly and helpful. The cottage had everything we wanted and was extremely cosy. Was a fantastic holiday."
    - Miss Adams, March 2017
    "Lovely location with plenty of walking straight from the door. Accommodation cosy and very comfortable, a welcome pack of some milk and lovely home baking plus use of the most fabulous large hot tub. Would recommend and love to return, thank you."
    - Mrs Barnett, June 2017
    "The only drawback is the the long, pot holed track to access the annex."
    - Mrs Spencer, May 2017
    "The location of the cottage was a little too remote. Long walk to nearest pub and no local shop, had to drive to nearest town."

    Mrs Samantha Inglesant, Derby, Derbyshire
    "The cottage is well located, it feels very isolated, but was actually not too far to get to pubs and shops. The conservatory on the front was a lovely sun trap and I enjoyed reading in there. The overall cleanliness, décor and comfort was outstanding and the automatic gate was very convenient!"

    - Miss Warren, March 2019
